The Human Rights Podcast



On 18 September we published the pilot episode of The Human Rights Podcast, a new podcast from the Irish Centre for Human Rights. It is available now on Soundcloud and will shortly be available on Apple Podcast and Stitcher.


The purpose of the podcast is to share the work, ideas and debates that go on here in the ICHR and more broadly in NUI Galway with a wider audience. We look forward to publishing interviews with some of the world-leading academics, policy-makers and practitioners who visit us during the year, and with members of our staff and student community.


In our pilot episode of The Human Rights Podcast, we speak to Professor Donncha O'Connell about Ireland's progress towards a human rights-based approach to policing. Among the many topics we discuss are community policing, state security and access to justice.


This episode is published on the first anniversary of the publication of the Report of the Commission on the Future of Policing, entitled 'The Future of Policing in Ireland'. You can access the Report here:
